2020 - Reality Sucks
"That's what you get for thinking"
The protest movement in France is bringing some hope for people worldwide and has given vigor to a revolutionary mindset taking place among the working class of the world. Who knows where this can lead but face it, history isn't on our side. I mean, regardless what has been done in the past, we're still dealing with this major shit aren't we? So it's not like anything has been THAT successful.
But I got to thinking, sorry Grandpa.
I thought, assuming Trump runs again in 2020 (which is like NEXT YEAR in a couple few weeks), how many Americans would vote for him? Last election, almost 63 million people voted for him.
We've now seen what he's all about as president, which is basically an extension of ruling class neoliberal, neoconservative, imperialist rule, regardless the excuses made for this complete asshole of a human regarding the deep state or democratic party political theater or his "advisors" he himself fucking hired. Give me break.
If the election were held today, he'd get another 60 plus million people to vote for him.
What does that say?
Conversely, what if Hillary Clinton had won based on her getting 65 plus million votes, i.e., winning the illusionary democratic popular vote? She no doubt would have continued the same neoliberal, neoconservative imperialist agenda for the ultimate level of human lust and greed. As my brother likes to say, it would be the same thing only different. Yet, if an election were held today, again assuming Hillary was president, she would get sixty million plus votes.
Hillary may not even run again, or if she does she might not end up as the democratic party nominee. But if she did and was, she would get those votes.
130 million fucking people. Think about that.
Unless something major changes, by November 2020, a little over half of the voting eligible citizens of this country will have voted either a democratic party or a republican party politician for president and voted to decide which of the two OLIGARCHY political parties has the majority (i.e., American democracy) in the Congress and Senate.
And for most of us, we, and the planet, will be worse off than we were today, in many ways, and the trajectory will continue downward. There is no doubt under this Orwellian capitalist nightmare of never-ending greed and lust for power.
We can wait for it to happen, or we can do something about it. My proposal, which I first made in 1955 when the doctor slapped my butt and forced me to live, is to BOYCOTT THE FUCKING DUOPOLY!! Really, I came out saying just that. My own mom wondered what the fuck was going on but quickly realized she herself had nurtured such a response to the world. I love you Mom, rest in peace. I think that's the first time I've ever written that. I need one of those emotion thingies but I don't know how.
Just imagine, nobody voting for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Nobody voting for any politician in either of the two oligarchy political parties. "Imagine all the people, living life in peace, yoo hooo. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us."
I'm just kidding around, man. Let's listen to some music.
